Hon Ga Choi Island, Halong Bay

3.5
#8 of 10 in Parks in Halong Bay
Admire Hon Ga Choi Island, the unusual symbol of the Ha Long bay. The exotic natural rock formation rises above the sea and looks like a rooster and a hen faced towards each other. Have fun making out various figures of the stones seen from different angles. You can take a cruise around the bay and enjoy the view of the island and the scenery around it. If you can't take a boat ride, don't worry, since you can see the island from afar.
